MSENSE® FO

Fiber-optic online temperature measurement with the MSENSE® FO system

When power transformers fail, the costs can get high. Online fiber optic temperature monitoring by MSENSE® FO precisely detects the winding temperature in real time. Unlike conventional measurements, the system immediately detects a rise in winding temperature or hot spot. It is easy to integrate, robust and comprehensively processes the measured values. MSENSE® FO is the effective tool for dynamic overload management and ensures high operational reliability and efficiency.

Product Information

Detecting Hotspots at an Early Stage

According to a study by CIGRE, winding problems are the cause of 45% of transformer failures. 
An increase of just 12°C in the winding temperature drastically reduces the service life of the transformer by 75%.

Prevention of costly transformer failures

The MSENSE® FO system accurately depicts the winding temperature continuously in real time. It therefore shows the thermal state of the transformer at all times. As an early warning system, MSENSE® FO supports operational security and ensures a long service life.

Conventional winding-temperature thermometers provide a calculated, average depiction of the temperature profile. The fiber-optic MSENSE® FO system does more. In particular for critical and key applications, the early and accurate detection of hotspots can make all the difference.

MSENSE® FO for maximum reliability

The MSENSE® FO innovatively combines several assemblies into a robust solution design for fiber-optic online temperature monitoring. The practical and flexible MSENSE® FO system for your power transformer is the result of combining decades of experience in the field and a great deal of expertise.

Monitoring the thermal loads with MSENSE® FO while also using ETOS® safeguards grid stability and enables responses to dynamic overloads. Monitoring the winding temperature online provides the basis for improved temperature management and, at the same time, enables data-based service-life and asset management. The interplay between MSENSE® FO and ETOS® is preconfigured and fits into the world's first open operating system for intelligent transformers. A connection to SCADA systems common throughout the world is also available as an option.

Based on many years of practical field experience and industry-leading expertise, details have been integrated into the fiber-optic sensor that fit seamlessly into the design and the value chain of a power transformer.

The user-optimized solution goes beyond the requirements of ASTM D3426 and D-149, and has a very low partial discharge (< 2 pC).

The use of first-class materials combined with high-quality production and testing technology also ensures a coherent and field-optimized overall concept for the add-on accessories. This not only fits seamlessly into the design and value chain, but also takes the environment and application into account to the highest degree.

The symbiosis of optimized sensor technology with sophisticated electronics and data preparation is integrated into a customer-oriented overall solution.

Depending on the application and application requirements, you can choose between different versions and optional extensions.
